At least 16 Palestinians sustained various injuries on Saturday night during clashes with Israeli forces, which raided the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Issawiya.

Palestinian news agency WAFA quoted local sources as saying that heavily armed forces raided several shops in the neighborhood and assaulted civilians in what seemed to be a retaliatory crackdown targeting the area.

At least 16 people, including an 8-year-old boy, suffered injuries from rubber-coated bullets, teargas or beating. The wounded were treated at the scene of the attack.
